After over 10 years, like many of you,  I have given uo on Photobucket and would so appreciate some recommendations on sites you find easy to use with good service.

Maybe even free as Photobucket became extremely expensive.

Thanks so much for anyone's willingness to help Thumbs Up.

Hi Dave,

I switched from Photobucket to  imgBB ( when Photobucket blocked the images on all the free accounts. It's free, doesn't appear to have any quantity or bandwith limitations, and allows you to select several different link code formats including one that conserves your original file name. The only downside that I've found is that you must determine the image size in advance before you upload. I also miss the page display format of Photobucket.

Since switching I've had absolutely no issues or interruptions with their service.

You also might look at Fotki (, which has become the defacto standard for the car modeling world. I think the user interface is excellent and it appears to be very reliable. It's not free, but the basic service is relatively cheap - 100GB storage for $24.00/year.

I use IMGUR with no issues what-so-ever.  Do a search online for photo hosting sites and select the one that would work best for you.  That how I started out this time around after Photobucket's big price increase.

I've been using Fotki, it's not free but much cheaper. We don't have many Phot-posting options here in the UK.

i find the sorting and albums kinda incoherent.
